English speaking learning materials, teachers, Microlearning,


The microlearning method has been accelerating and facilitating the pedagogical approach to developing teachers as professionals in 21st-century learning. However, research into English speaking learning materials, particularly microlearning-based English speaking learning materials for the teachers in Agam District, West Sumatra, is limited and urged. This study reports the development of Common European Framework (CEFR) and microlearning-based spoken production learning materials for teachers of junior high schools in Agam through the workshop. The findings revealed that the teachers’ competence was significantly positive in developing learning materials based on microlearning. They become skillful and able to design microlearning-based English-spoken materials for their context and their needs. Their expertise can have an impact on the teachers in Agam and act as a socializing agent for the other teachers in West Sumatra
